  1. Yahoo has implemented a company-wide hiring freeze despite hundreds of open positions as the first step in a cost-reduction initiative. The company is even contemplating layoffs moving forward, although these…

    Yahoo! = the newest version of AOL and MySpace. They'll be just a footnote in Wikipedia 3 years from now.

    Seems Jerry abandoned a sinking ship. I have always hated Yahoo Sex Messenger and have never cared for Yahoo for this reason.

    Uh, what do we have here? A Yahoo fanboy? lol...

    Have to agree with the Guest first post. Yahoo has not been doing very good lately. Yahoo has become worse than AOL ever had time to be. Investors aren't happy, some people think Yahoo is no longer relevant, ect ect. Yahoo sucks because Yahoo betrayed its users on all fronts.

    And talk about Yahoo's phenomenal business model. Hey, lets spend lots of money developing rich content to attract advertisers then make it really difficult for them to give you their money. And their products suck! Just look at 360, Messenger, Music, Autos, Real Estate, Search or many, many others crappy Yahoo products. When it boils to a company like Yahoo, it’s definitely not a positive.

  8. I have a friend who still uses Yahoo for everything - home page, search, email - and clearly with 500+ million visitors a month, it doesn't seem to be done for. What a big mistake by Yang to resist the Microsoft offer($45bn).

    The only thing Yahoo! has consistently done right is their music video service. It trumps anything (barring TPB and Bittorrent) out there and has for years.
